Alliance Française French Film Festival: That Man from Rio (L’Homme De Rio)

Thu, Mar 15 / 9 pm
Directed by Philippe de Broca
1964, France, 112 min

Serviceman Jean-Paul Belmondo begins his 8-day leave by changing into civvies in a Métro entrance. There he witnesses fiancée Françoise Dorléac (Catherine Deneuve’s sister) getting kidnapped – and the chase begins… Belmondo performs his own blood-curdling stunts against that Sugar Loaf Rio skyline and across the under-construction unearthly architecture of Brasilia (even almost parachuting into the jaws of a hungry alligator)!

Sponsored by Alliance Francaise du Manitoba.

Reviews

That Man from Rio is a crazy delight, a stylish early 60’s pastiche that folds in every adventure movie cliché that you’ve ever seen and possibly invents a few new ones.
